Best Android Apps for Kids in 2015

Posted by Suhel Sayyad
There are many times when a parent needs a little time to finish a pressing project or get the next meal ready. It is usually during these times that children seem to need their attention the most. This is when a tablet or smartphone can be used to provide entertainment.
There are now thousands of apps and games available for Android users. Some of these are educational and some are just for fun but all are good at keeping the children busy. It is also quite possible to limit internet access or phone usage to ensure the children are only doing what they should be and not racking up huge bills for you to deal with.
The following are just a few of the great apps available at the moment:

Kids Place

Kids Place

This is actually a place to store apps. Known as a sand box, it allows apps to be downloaded by a parent who is registered as an administrator. Whilst your child is using the app it is impossible to download any new apps. This ensures your child is only playing on games or apps that you specify are ok for them regarding age or content.

Fablescapes 2

This app is designed to allow you and your child to create stories. Simply pick the characters and scenes you wish to use and put them together in an order you like. All characters can be dragged onto the screen at any time and made to pose in whichever way you like simply by double tapping the screen. The standard version comes with Knights and wizards but there are other themes which can be purchased.

Lego Duplo Train

Every toddler will take pleasure in building their own train. There are probably many older kids who would also enjoy this. Once the train is built you are able to select which carts to attach and what to put in those carts. You are then able to drive the train which stops periodically to play mini games. The landscape is also interactive and tapping on various objects will provide visual and audio feedback. Excellent fun whatever your kid’s age!

Toca Town

Toca Town
This is a freeform game which means that it does not follow standard game rules. Children are free to explore the environment and devise their own game. The game is set in a cartoon town with cartoon people and pets. There are many locations to explore and each one has interactive features – such as a light switch which turns the lights on and off. It is very much a child playing at grown up. They can cook meals, eat in restaurants, play cops and robbers or just play in the park. The possibilities are endless and are really only limited by their imagination.  

Minecraft Pocket Addition

Minecraft Pocket Addition
In the past children used building blocks to create things. Now this can be recreated on a tablet. Players are free to explore the world and create it in whichever shape they choose. They can build houses or other structures or just stack bricks. The landscape is vast and allows for many hours spent building or exploring. It is even possible for a parent to join in via Wi-Fi to enable multiplayer and build with your child. Users have stated that this is a highly addictive game!

iStorytime Storybook library

Many of you will have already come across digital read aloud story books but this app is amongst the best on the market. Beautifully narrated stories combine with fantastic artwork to ensure your child feels like a part of the story. The library has many classic stories and as many modern movie style adaptations. The app only comes with four story books but there are thousands more available to purchase.

Housing.com-More than Helping find "Home" Amidst Houses

Posted by Suhel Sayyad
Housing.com is a real estate portal that has helped countless people lookup homes in a reliable and logical manner. The portal has been instrumental in bringing about transparency in the search for homes.

Housing.com has evolved over years. It has donned an avatar that now highlights its traits in a new light. Everyone knew what housing.com could do. But now the portal has brought forth its personality; an image that so far was driving the company internally. Now the organization shares its vision and mission; and invites all stake holders to join its journey into the future. 
 
Housing.com-More than Helping find "Home" Amidst Houses

Housing in its New Avatar

The new housing.com is optimistic, aspirational and elegant. It is no longer a black box known only to the insiders and a chosen few. The company wants to serve with transparency. It asks people to ‘Look up’ and strive ahead into a bold new future along with it. The ‘Look up’ symbol spearheads the way to the future while nurturing and sheltering everyone who comes along.

Housing.com now looks expressive and authentic. It comes with vibrant imagery, a gamut of colours to exhibit a spirit that can match with one and match with all. The event horizon is no longer there. What has replaced it is more vibrant, inviting and spirited. The company has shed its cocoon and now allows the world to see for what it is. Housing.com is now going to be accessible to all. The company is set to achieve this objective by its elegance.

Elegance in housing.com is fostered by adherence to the highest standards of quality while simplifying the results for all. One does not have to go through the rig morale of understanding complex, niche tasks that help achieve results. However one would undoubtedly be able to understand the outcomes and appreciate the expertise that yields it.

While endeavouring to be a world class company, housing.com is not elitist, boring or conforming to norms. It challenges passivity and ignites thoughts. The company communicates with clarity and without jargon. It wishes to bring about transparency that is lacking in the property business for such a long time now. The passion with which it pursues it objectives can only come with a heightened sense of calculated optimism. While not being negative, housing.com does not cause disruptions. The company does not believe in inculcating a false sense of optimism and ensures that everything it offers is backed by facts; not marketing fluff.

The Never Say Die Attitude

It is not possible for a technology company to constantly keep an eye on the future and bear an innovative approach towards every new confrontation. Most organizations succumb to norms in time. However this is where housing.com stands defiant. The company does not settle to be in the second place. The drive is ingrained so deep that it does not even settle for success. As soon as a new milestone is reached, focus shifts towards another seemingly improbable target. And then it is only a matter of time before focussed energy, positivity and never-say-die attitude helps achieve it.

To Conclude

Housing.com has always believed in changing the game to help world become a better place to live in. It endeavours to be responsible when others are cutting corners. Housing.com is here.. Look up!

Samsung Galaxy S6 Versus iPhone 6: The Battle of the Gaints

Posted by Suhel Sayyad
The next year would be exciting for both the mobile lovers as the flagship phones from the leading mobile manufacturers, Samsung and Apple are making their way to the market.
Today, we will stack the Samsung Galaxy S6 with iPhone 6. The fight between the leading smartphone from these brands will give the hint who is going to dominate the flagship mobile market in 2015. So, why the wait? Let's start the battle of Samsung Galaxy S6 Vs. iPhone6

Samsung Galaxy S6 Versus iPhone 6: The Battle of the Gaints

Samsung Galaxy S6 Vs iPhone 6: The Battle of the Giants

Design and Build

Apple has always been popular in the design criteria, and they have kept the river flowing with the right set improvements, including a 4.7 inch display. The phone is light and thin, scoring 129g and 6.9 mm in both the sections respectively. The body has an aluminium finish just like their predecessors.
Samsung, on the other hand, has really improved in the design section. The build has been improved from cheap plastic finish to metallic finish. The phone is thin, around 6.8 mm and have curvy edges to go with. A great leap from Samsung in the design and build quality section.

Processor and Hardware 

Apple has remained stuck to their previous processor, the A8 Chip that is simple dual-core processor with a relatively low clock speed of 1.2 GHz. But, it performs at par with the new Samsung Exynos 7420 Octa-core(64-bit) processor. The reason behind the same level of performance is that not many apps use more than two cores and Apple has full control over the app store, which only harness the power of dual-core processor provided by the Apple store.
Apple also provides a powerful Quad-Core gaming chip, the PowerVR GX6450. On the other hand, the Samsung also offers tremendous capabilities to play games at higher resolution. Not to mention, the octa-core can provide the necessary juice to bring the games to their maximum FPS.
On the RAM department, the apple iPhone 6 offers 1 GB of LPDDR3 RAM, whereas the Samsung clearly bits Apple iPhone 6 with a whopping 3 GB of next-gen LPDDR4 RAM. Both the smartphones offer non-removable battery, but Samsung offers a better wireless charging battery that can seriously hamper the prospects of Apple iPhone 6 in the market. On the fingerprint section, both the iPhone 6 and Samsung S6 offers great advanced fingerprint sensor for better protection and privacy.

Display

Samsung clearly offers better display than the rival Apple iPhone 6. With a better pixel density and higher resolution, Samsung can be the choice of many people. Apple offers 326 PPI and Samsung offers more than 450 PPI density with high resolution.

Camera

With a high camera specs, Samsung might win this round, but cameras are more complex than that. Apple iPhone 6 8 MP camera is more powerful than the Samsung S6 16 MP camera. Though, it would be a close battle, but Samsung camera will produce much better images at low light places.

Wrap Up

Both Samsung Galaxy S6 and Apple iPhone 6 are here to stay. But, the question is who is the real winner? Samsung has undoubtedly levelled up their game with excellent design quality, powerful processor and great camera, but Apple iPhone is not far behind. 

The winner of this contest is Samsung Galaxy S6 hands down. Apple on the other hand, needs to improve their hardware to keep them in the game
